Life is getting weird again for Colin Farrell.
The trailer for "Sacred Deer" looks like it'll push some buttons, much like Lanthimos' previous work. Farrell stars as a surgeon who takes a young teen (Barry Keoghan) under his wing, only for the boy's behaviour to turn sinister.

The trailer is set to a very creepy, haunting rendition of Ellie Goulding's "Burn." And like "The Lobster" before, this film looks to combine comedy and tragedy to paint a portrait of just how deeply weird humans can be.
"The Killing of a Sacred Deer" opens in theaters October 27.
